    Modern IT technology makes sure you get ads that relate to you.

    So if you are getting stupid ads...

    I saw one from the same advertiser that said "slap the belly", and had a sumo wrestler. Couldn't get a shot though.

    I'm finding that the ad-blocker on Oepra isn't working for some of these newer ads :( I click and it does nothing >_<

    Aaaaaarrrrrggghhhhhh!!!!! :aargh: The Ninja Gaiden ad is killing me! It slows my internet to a crawl whenever it is on the screen, even just partly. At the moment it is showing up at the top and bottom of every page, even right now as I type this.

    I can only see the ads when I use the computer at work, and this one comes up more than most.

    There are dancing mortage advertisments all over the internet. It's like a meme. Some have dancing animals in them.

    It's just weird. There's not that much more to it. Think of it this way: The dancing person brought your attention to the ad. It even caused you to spread the ad even further across the internet. The advertisers have done thier job.

    If I were an advertising executive, I'd say that "it doesn't send a coherent message". But since I'm not, I'll just agree with you :)

    Still, I wouldn't get a mortgage from those folks :p
